    Oh my god, i’m speechless.

    Nu!! I missed you so much *_*

    Scans on Mu-12 and Nu-13!!!

  • XiaomuArisu

    Best 2d fighter ever!
    …for me atleast…dont kill me.

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      Kill you with fire!!!! KoF is the best lol.^_^

      • XiaomuArisu

        Its like a spring breeze…with pain!

    • TheRealMalek

       don’t worry your are not alone to think this ;p

    • MrTyrant

       If your are talking about the plot then yes, is the best. Now as a fighting game is not bad yet there a lot of room for improvement, I think Guilty Gear was better overall.

      • z_merquise

        Yep, same here. I like Blazblue but Guilty Gear is better for me.

        Which is why I’m very excited to see a new Guilty Gear game now that Arc Sys got the rights back from Sega.

    • Demeanor

      I respect the series, but my vote goes to Arcana Heart 3 :P

    • z_merquise

      I won’t because Shaq-fu is the best 2D fighting game!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • Göran Isacson

        This. Even if this games slams approach the best… it must still jam with the rest, compared to the glory of the Shaq attack.

  • Alex Sargeant

    Woah woah. Redhead at 1:10. Who the hell is that? It’s not the Imperator, I think they had purple hair. I don’t think it’s Tsubaki either given the crazy eye colour. One of the heroes like Nine?

    Man I’m so godddamn excited for this.

    • TheRealMalek

       I’m thinking it’s cecilia :

      • Alex Sargeant

        Oh damn! That’s pretty spot on isn’t it? Her history makes her a super interesting inclusion, what with being dead and all.

        • ThatAzure

          She may be dead, yes, but with the latest installment of the Phase Shift novels there is evidence that Cecilia can be in the BB:CP.

    • it is is Tsubaki

      • Thought that as well until I noticed the costume change.

        and tsubakis eyes are more of a crimson(bright reddish brown maybe, kinda hard to tell since it seems to change between scenes) color while the girl at 1:10’s eyes are golden.

        • Alex Sargeant

          The hair ornaments are almost identical now that I’ve kind of noticed them. Her outfit is totally different from regular Tsubaki though.

          • another thing is that this “new” girl is shown in a montage of characters in which Tsubaki was already shown in a showdown with noel(I don’t think they’d give her that much screentime)

  • MrRobbyM

    This is definitely my favorite opening to any BB game so far. Really good work there. That said I don’t think I’m going to get this game given how CS was handled.

  • Mu-12!!!!!!! >_< Yeah, I love my Noel especially when she is in sexy mecha mode =^_^=

  • imaguni

    Looking awesome, love the music!

  • Julian Esteban Soria

    F*CK YEAH!

  • Cephrien


    That was the most epic thing I ever— NHGHH..!!

  • That’s reassuring, seeing as Nu-13/Lambda-11 was my main. Well, with the ending of Continuum Shift, there wasn’t much of a doubt, but it’s good to have something more concrete.

  • Before watching this, I thought of giving up on BlazBlue, not because they’re bad (they’re good) but because I hyped myself too much on CS, which was the same as CT (if less so) and buying DLC that can’t be played in arcade mode, not mention not getting Relius meaning buying a new game just for ONE character.

    As for CP, the transvestite is the most interesting character while the big guy’s generic and for Bullet, I already hate her because how she’s design because having giant boobs does not equal character!

    The intro looks good though, the stages are mostly new ones and the music heard there rocks (though I hope returning characters will have version of their themes, not just recycling the ones from CT).

    I might buy this but only as a normal version and I’ll be less hypeful this time.

    • Luna Kazemaru

       Then you shouldn’t hype yourself up for any fighting game if you have an issue with CT and CS being somewhat the same.

      • My fault on that but I guess I just wanted to know what happened next in the story which wasn’t as good as the first one but maybe that might be because I didn’t understand what characters were saying because I put in Japanese but next time, I’ll play CP in english.

        • Luna Kazemaru

           Not really your fault then CS didn’t advance much of the story but showed how the so called ‘time loop’ process worked in the game IMO.

          • Well with the time loop out of the way, hopefully the story will be better since this one will be about the Six Heroes.

    • Safros9

      Just so you know, pretty much all of the music is being redone.

  • Shane Guidaboni

    My mind has been trained so that anytime I see the word “chrono”, I automatically think of Chrono Trigger or anything related to it. With that said, I like forward to playing this game. 

  • Z3

    I can’t help but post this picture

  • This game is going to be so awesome.

    The music is wonderful

    Cant wait to see what Ragna and Taokaka are up too XD Jin as well, now that he has control over Yukianesa

  • Vitonofrio del Rosso


  • Myles Lee

    it maybe ceceilia but its definatlynot tsubaki as the hair is way shorter and eye color is different and would there be some hint of her using her nox nyctores in the picture… has to be a new character

  • I’m not really a fan of the game, but I am a fan of the art and characters. 

    Looking forward to the delicious cosplay ;o

  • Code

    Not really any surprises here, was skeptical from the go that Nu and Mu wouldn’t make the cut. Trailer looks great can’t wait > w <;; Although I have to admit after P4A I’m hoping that BBCP pulls a few of the P4A’s qualities. Found P4A to be an extremely fun fighter and I’d just love some of those traits in BB o 3 o;; Also still have my fingers crossed for playable Jubei and Kokonoe u w u~

  • Tee Niitris

    What makes Mu-12 and Nu-13 different from each other?
    (never played Continuum Shift; I do know that Noel became Mu-12 or something like that)

    • Luna Kazemaru

      One uses lasers the other uses swords lol.

    • Alex Sargeant

      Nu-13 has kind of fast hitting sword projectiles, where as Mu-12 fights with little Gradius Option-like drones. One is stabby, one is shooty.

  • Even with my currently maining Valkenhayn (and assuredly maining the lovely miss Bullet), it’s reassuring to know that Nu will still be around and available for all my sword conjuring needs. <3

  • Magus KilIer

    That is the coolest opening song to anything ever

  • ThatAzure

    Sweet :D~!~! The only reason I stopped maining Mu-12 and concentrated more on Noel was because I didn’t think she’d be in BB:CP, but she is indeed in the game XD which means I’m gonna put more effort into her now!

    So excited for this game~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~!

  • At 1:10…is that Tsubaki? The hair beads are there, but the eyes colour is orange, not red. New char maybe? It’s something that caught me first time watching.

    • MrJechgo

      I’d say “new character”.

  • MrJechgo

    Glad to see Nu-13 and Mu-12 back ^^

  • Göran Isacson

    Man look at all these serious faces, and those sweet, sweet screaming guitars. Years may pass, the names may change and the art-styls may differ, but damn if ArcSys over the top rock and roll doesn’t make my knees all-a-shiver.

    Which is really the most I’ve got to say about this, since this isn’t otherwise that intriguing a trailer. Already seen the new characters here, with the exception of that mysterious red-head…

    • Speedo Redempteur

       yeah those music tunes are a good way to get in the mood for a fight ….you know because

      • Göran Isacson

        “REBEL ONE. FIGHT.”

        God I love engrish.

  • Katamari Toys

    awesome opening, cant wait to see who is the new char at 1:10, but, I’m still hoping that  they will anounce Kokonoe or Jubei

    • I think its cecilia, after catching up with the Phase shift novels it makes sense.(be surprise if she diden’t appear in some way)

      and it turns out shes the most requested character in Japan…(thats what I’ve heard anyway)

      but if shes playable and Jubei isen’t I’ll be a little pissed.

      and on another note how exactly would Kokonoe fight?(any ideas?)

      • Katamari Toys

        thanks for the heads up, I’m not following the novels (stoped at the first), but wouldnt she be more than 100yo in CP timeline?

        Dunno, I think that Kononoe is easiest story char to put in the game, because they can do anything with her, they can make her use the power of magic, science (maybe something like tron bonne), hard hitter or swordwoman, (daughter of jubei after all) or a mix of all.

        • SirTeffy

           I always figured she’d have a “style shift” system where Drive changed stances between Science, Magic, and Claws.

        • Kokonoe pulled her to the present time using the ChronoPhantasma(and its the young one not the old)

          personally i think kokonoes style would revolve around science(since she basically hates magic) so maybe some long range style.

          • Katamari Toys

            Nice, I hope we will see she in action in the next loketest ^^

            @SirTeffy:disqus would be awesome, but I think that it would make her a pain in the ass to ASW balance her gameplay :/

    • Alexander Marquis Starkey

      It’s Tsubaki, here eyes changed color along with her outfit. 

      • Katamari Toys

        when I first saw the hair ornament I also thought that it was tsubaki, but the outfit doesnt match the dark tsubaki (1:10 have exposed shoulders, etc)

    • Shinoyami65

      I think it might be another Murakumo Unit, her clothing looks similar to Mu’s non-battle form (or at least the part around Mu’s neck) .

      • Katamari Toys

        “xpto”14 would be great, even more if it was with head/moves of Tsubaki!

    • Shinoyami65

      I think it’s another Murakumo Unit. Her clothing is similar to the neck area of Mu’s non-battle outfit and slightly resembles the chestplate she wears in battle form.

  • Maia Kasoya

    I’m guessing Lambda’s gonna be an alternate color for Nu.
    And if Nu’s coming back, then that means so are her yandere lines against Ragna, right? :D

  • Go2hell66
  • Ryan Chiu

    God, so glad that Nu-13 is back. Favorite character.

  • Chrono Phantasma; upping the badassery in the BlazBlue universe!

  • Herok♞

    This is my new favorite arcade opening for a BB game I didn’t care for the others but really like this one.

  • Neppygear

    So much HYPE.

  • XypherCode

    Waiting for the animated OP :)
